Purpose: To develop and carry out programs of bilingual education in
elementary and secondary schools, including activities at the pre-
school level, which are designed to meet the educational needs of
children of limited English proficiency (LEP); to demonstrate effective
ways of providing such children with instruction designed to enable them,
while using their native language, to achieve competence in English;
and to build the capacity of grantees to continue programs of bilingual
education after Federal funding ceases.

Program Components: The Office of Bilingual Education and Minority
Languages Affairs administers the ESEA Title VII Bilingual Education
Program and funds 12 subprograms. Basic Projects in Bilingual Education,
Demonstration Projects, and Desegregation Support Projects will be dis-
cussed in this chapter; the remaining nine programs are discussed in other
chapters. A description of the three programs follows:

1. Basic Projects in Bilingual Education. A Basic Project grant is award-
ed to establish,operate or improve programs of bilingual education to
assist children of limited English proficiency as defined in the legis-
lation to improve their English-language skills. Programs supported by
the Bilingual Education Act are intended to assist children to be able
to enter an all-English-language educational program as soon as possible.
LEAs are required to design programs within a framework that requires the
use of English, and to the extent necessary, the child's home language in
instruction in non-language subject areas. The projects are intended to
build the capacity of the grantee to maintain programs of bilingual
education when Federal funding is reduced or no longer available.cial Report.    Andover,    MA:    The NETWORK, Inc., November
